Thank you for visiting Planet Applique! We would like to give you a little background about the site and how it came to be!
My name is Rehbecca Lowder and I began sewing when I was 14 years old after my great grandmother helped me sew my first quilt. Taking to the art right away, I quickly began making quilts and crocheting baby afghans for all the new parents in my church. Sewing off and on throughout the years as time permits, I believe that sewing is a stress reliever of sorts and FUN!
My first home business went into motion after I became a mother for the second time, and just couldnt bare to be apart from my children that God had blessed me with. Taking the plunge after maternity leave into a permanent leave, I purchased a commercial consew. My business was centered around baby quilts and hand made bears.
Throughout the years, my stay at home career has taken on many faces, until Planet Applique was born. My Husband, Corey, and I handle customer inquiries, devise art project to digitize and make administrative decisions as husband and wife.
I personally thank God above for the opportunity to put the abilities and skills He has bestowed on me to good use. Because of the Lord, I have the energy each day to digitize wonderful new designs that can help women everywhere save money, fulfill their artistic sewing passions, and even start their own businesses with the things they create. It's rewarding to know that Planet Applique can be of help. Without God, Planet Applique would not be here.
I own a Brother Innov-is 6000D embroidery/sewing combo machine and have 14 years of sewing experience. I also have 10 years of graphic artistic design and designed modules and programming for many of your favorite embroidery websites!
